Nisonger speedometer update

Pease note that the GT40 range has been newly expanded to include 270° Sweep Electric Water and Oil Temp Gauges which eliminate the troublesome/fragile Capillary Tubes used by their mechanical counterparts plus a 270° Sweep Electric Oil Press.

Thanks: that is a shame.

It will be interesting to see how exact these replacements are.

Well I have in my primrose all the replacements
Minus the amp
They are exact with the exception no blue or green filters!
So for me it’s perfect
I will call on speedo and tach!

Did you replace the speedo and tach?…… the other guages?
Can you post a photo of the centre guages please

They didn’t make them yet I’m hoping now they do….

This is actually the second time this happened to them. Their old site was flooded by the little channelized stream that flows through, under and around that industrial section. They moved a couple of blocks away, and the office was higher off the ground. Still got 'em. Weather is getting worse every year. That entire area is due for some sort of flood control.

I noticed that they now offer a replacement oil pressure gauge/sender set that is not based on the oldbi-metalic element design that has been such a failure and caused many to opt for mechanical gauges. I don’t know the price but regardless it has to be better than replacing the sender or gauge every so often or going through installing a mechanical unit. Might be worth looking into.

Cant imagine why that’d be.


Expecting lot a rain here this summer….about every 10 years a really wet summer….

Who has them though?

I recently had my Series 1 gauges totally restored by West Valley Instruments. They recommended and I accepted the “new” oil pressure gauge, in lieu of trying to salvage my original one. I have received the lot from them. All look very good and the new OP gauge looks quite the same as the other original gauges.

They are fine!
It’s the tach and speedo!

That has been my experience with repro Smiths mechanical/capillary gauges too.

Would have spent less money, and ended up with a better product if I’d sourced an original, and had it rebuilt.

I can’t speak for repro vs original electronic gauges.

He just called me…supposedly the NEW NEW NEW speedo and Tach will look original and production will start around feb 2022
Lets see…
